Storyboard Text

  • In the play "A Streetcar Named Desire",  the author, Tennessee Williams  uses the character Stanley to portray  how society and man think they are the dominant gender.  His abusive actions  hurts his wife ,Stella, in scene 3 then Stella's sister , Blanche . in scene 11.
  • Why don't you woman  go up and sit with Eunice?
  • [A chair scrapes. Stanley gives a loud whack of his hand on her thigh.]
  • That's not fun, Stanley. 
  • Poker is so fascinating. Could I kibitz?
  • In  "jokingly" slapping Stella's thigh , Stanley shows disrespect towards his  wife.   He doesn't apologize or acknowledges that Stella   was uncomfortable, instead he  just tells the ladies to leave.
  • In Scene 3, Stanley and his friends have poker night.  A night (according to Stanley)  where women shouldn't participate. Nonetheless   Blanche and Stella   go home because it's late.   Stanley take advantage of Stella and slaps her in the behind. 
  • In scene 11, Blanche and Stanley have an  argument.  The situation takes   a turn in which Stanley crosses the line.  Taking advantage of the situation Stanley rapes  Blanche , knowing he'll never get   caught.
  • I would! I will if you--
  • [She moans. The bottle top falls. She sinks to her knees. He picks up her inert figure and carries her to the bed.]
  • [He springs toward her, overturning the table. She cries out and strikes at him with the bottle top but he catches her wrist.]
  • Tiger--tiger! Drop the bottle top! Drop it! We've had this date with each other from the beginning!
  • In both key moments , we see how society has shaped Stanley's misogynist view point.   He physical abuses over Stella and Blanche  but doesn't have any penalty over his actions. This proves how more often than not the men take advantage of not having repercussion over their  choices
